There it was - Look at that Candy. OOOO mom said we could pick one piece of candy because we were good in the supermarket.
"Missi - Look! They have all kinds of candy here."
"Bobbi - that's the seeds. They're for gardens.
"They are candy - look - a picture of a watermelon. - What do you think the carrot candy tastes like?"
"Bobbi - it says seeds on the bags."
"Bobbi - those are seeds. I can read it. You can't read."
"Missi - you're such a bragger. I can read - it says Candy."
I was five. I didn't read when I was five.
Mom let me buy that back with the watermelon on the front.. "Let her find out for herself, Missi."
When I got to the car, I opened the bag to find candy that looked like watermelon seeds.
I tasted one - expecting sugary goodness -
But - geez - it tasted like seeds.
